My mission is to help you develop a long-term wealth management plan that serves the needs of you and your family. By following a disciplined process that is centered on planning, my team and I can help you navigate the ups and downs in financial markets while staying committed to the plan and seeing it through to a successful outcome. With the extensive resources of a global financial firm coupled with 25 years of experience, I’m able to deliver a comprehensive approach to wealth management in the following areas: wealth forecasting, retirement income planning, tax minimization strategies, portfolio management services, trust and estate planning services, mortgage and personal financing solutions, business financing, succession planning, and insurance needs (life and long-term care). Importantly, I welcome the opportunity to collaborate with your other advisors such as your CPA or attorney.
